Calling all Manifest fans: We’ve got some news for you.
One month after NBC announced that season three will be the show's last, we’re hearing that there might be some plans in the works to bring the series back. Per Entertainment Weekly, a source close to the drama revealed they are “working on a number of things.” Unfortunately, that’s about as specific as the details get at this time.
When the cancellation news was announced back in June, Manifest creator Jeff Rake assured disappointed fans that he was trying to find a new home for future installments.
“My dear Manifesters, I’m devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us,” he wrote on Twitter. “That we’ve been shut down in the middle is a gut punch to say the least. Hoping to find a new home. You the fans deserve an ending to your story. Thanks for the love shown to me, cast, and crew. #savemanifest.”
Now, after all of the speculation, it seems Rake is keeping his lips sealed until things are set in stone. In a new post on Tuesday, he wrote, “Lots of speculation out there. No comment. Other than, if the impossible happens and the dead rise again, it’s because of YOU.” Seems promising enough.
Lots of speculation out there. No comment. Other than, if the impossible happens and the dead rise again, it?s because of YOU.#SaveManifest— Jeff Rake (@jeff_rake) July 20, 2021
If you’re unfamiliar, the hit NBC show tells the mysterious story of a group of passengers, who board a flight that lands five years in the future. The 191 travelers return to a world that is quite different from the one they left behind.
The cast includes Melissa Roxburgh (Star Trek Beyond), Josh Dallas (Once Upon a Time), Athena Karkanis (Saw VI), J.R. Ramirez (Jessica Jones), Luna Blaise (Fresh Off the Boat), Jack Messina (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) and Parveen Kaur (Beyond).
Until we get more updates, we’ll be bingeing the series on Netflix.
